When everything seems fucked up, I think it’s important to look at your decisions and ask yourself whether they match up to your goals. For example, one of my goals was that I wanted to write at least five hundred words every evening, but when I looked at how I was actually deciding to spend my time, I realised how much I was procrastinating by doodling or reading or whatever.
Every single decision we make, have made or will ever make will essentially be made either due to a desire for growth, or due to fear. I think that when we take responsibility for everything we do we can gain power. And I think that it’s by deciding to make our choices from a desire to grow, rather than from fear – (i.e. by deciding to, for example, take that interview, confront that person, or go out tonight rather than avoiding such situations) that we can begin to change the world; to do the incredible things we aspire to do and become the incredible people we aspire to be.
